I can't find any info on why MCW is so old for a sophomore. I read through his entire high school career and don't see anything about him being held back (was an honor role student). Was he held back before high school? WHY ARE YOU SO OLD!?!?!
Trey Burke awarded with his first National Player of the Week honor.
I like Trey Burke a lot especially his passing ability. My concern is his height and he doesn't seem like he has that extra gear in regards to speed. Some times speed/quickness can over come a lack of height. However, I think his passing and understanding of the game is very high. Again I haven't watched him very much but what I have seen I am impressed. Just a side note, I like the Robinson kid from Michigan too.
I am with PKM about not wanting to package picks just to get him. I think he will be available unless he continues to perform as he has then Burke may be too far out of our reach to even package our picks to get him. There is still a long ways to go before the draft. Right now, I think he is a very good backup PG on a good team which is a need for the Jazz. I think he could possibly be a good starter on a contending team if he continues to work hard and is on the right team.
Anyone watch enough of Trey to give feedback on whether he's improved his defense? Is he staying in front of his man?

I'm not sure what the jazz play. It isn't basketball. Its a strange cross of Red Rover and inside out dodgeball.-Cathay Kelly, Toronto Star.
